Newcastle United Women’s Football Club welcomes Wakefield Ladies Football Club to Northumbria University Coach Lane on Sunday 22nd January in the Northern Combination Women’s Football League

Following a break in the league fixture list last week due to their planned match with Sheffield Wednesday Ladies Football Club being postponed due to Sheffield’s participation in the Quarter Final of the League Cup, the players are keen to get back on the pitch. Newcastle are currently sitting top of the league but know that Wakefield will do everything they can to make sure they take back home some much needed points.

NUWFC First Team manager Michael Havelock said ‘”This is a difficult game for NUWFC this weekend could see us stamp our authority on the title chase. A solid permanent and three points will send out a message to those also chasing the league title. We are capable of doing so if we can continue our strong performances and team work ethic. The girls are united in their goal and will stop at nothing to get there. Let’s hope we see this passion and commitment on Sunday.”

Training went ahead this week despite the sudden change in the weather which saw temperatures drop dramatically making it more as it should be at this time of the year. But with a great turn out and a lot of hard work from both Management and Players the preparation for this week’s game continued.

NUWFC First Team Captain Sarah Wilson said ‘Anything can happen in this league so it’s important that we don’t switch off on Sunday. All the girls know exactly what we need to do, they understand how important every single point is. It’s crucial we don’t slip up. Sitting at the top of the table is a fantastic place to be at this point in the season; however we must earn the right to win games. Wakefield won’t give up easy, but if we carry on going the way we are I’m confident we can get a result’.

This Sunday’s Match Day Mascots are Prudhoe Youth Club Football Club U14 Girls who will be spending time with the players before and after the match as well as being ball girls.

NUWFC Reserves

Newcastle United Women’s Football Club Reserves travel to Stoke City Ladies Football Club Reserves on Sunday. Stoke are currently sitting fifth in the league two places above NUWFC but the ladies go into the game not thinking about the league position but the important points that are on offer. Newcastle met Leicester last week and both players and Management were impressed with the performance of all of the players and will be looking forward to more of the same this Sunday. Steph Shaw put three goals passed the Leicester keeper in a hard fought game which saw the teams share the points.

Reserve Team Manager Gary Appleton said ‘Sundays result against Leicester sets us up nicely for our first away fixture of the New Year to Stoke City and the players should be very confident of putting in another good performance we again have 2 training sessions before the game and it is important that we have all the squad there if we want to keep improving .This team is a very young side with an average age of 18 which for the coaches make us all the more exciting knowing this team could stay together for a lot of years to come. But we will respect our opponents and hope that complacency does not creep into our performances its all about putting in the hard work in training and taking what we learn into the games on Sundays but on a mangers and coaches point of view “so far so good”

Reserve Team Captain Amy Perch said ‘Having put in such a big performance against top of the League Leicester in which we were unlucky to come away with just a point the players are hugely looking forward to Sunday’s trip to Stoke. Stoke have proved to be a decent side but with spirits high were confident that this week we can come away with all three points. The girls have to be sure to prepare well this week with the right attitude though, it will be by no means easy’

Venue: The Hardman Football Development Centre: Millrise Road, Milton, Stoke on Trent, ST2 7DW K.O. 2pm

    Well, 2012 was a great year for the Women’s game, and the year I decided (after the Olympics) to be more than just an occasional big game watcher. 

    Lot’s of highlights for me…small ones, the two Turbine-Arsenal games (first for the Yuki screamer in London, secondly for the mayhem of the second half in Potsdam), Germany and Marozsan taking it to the USA in October in two really high quality friendlies, Seeing Lisa Evans make such a positive impact in the Bundesliga, seeing the England/GB team finally wake up those dunderheads on the island to the fact they have great players, the U20 World Cup with all those emerging players, The UEFA Champions League final in Munich (50,000+)!!!

    But for all those great moments the Olympic Tournament was mint…way more entertaining than the Euros in June. And top of all of that, indeed the best football match I think i have seen since the 2005 Champions League final in Istanbul was the Semi-Final in Old Trafford between the USA and Canada. For Sinclair’s masterpiece Hattrick, for the American swaggering fight (and Rapinoe’s screamer) and the Morgan winner. (only slight downer was that the stadium deserved to be FULL for that one).

    I am hoping the game kicks on in 2013, we have the Euros but more than that i want to see the European Club Teams getting more coverage and respect and recognition for their talent. (Oh, and a Potsdam title might be nice too)
